First you should remove the hoses and clean the screens in the ends of the hose, some hoses have screens in both ends. While the hoses are removed look inside the water inlet valve there should be a screen in there also remove and clean the screen out. Some screens will not be removable so you will need to clean in place or remove the water inlet valve. If all is clear you will need to check the solenoids on the water inlet valve for power.If the solenoid has power when put in a fill cycle and no water eneters your washer you will need to replace the water inlet valve. Most water inlet valves must be replaced as a unit, so if one solenoid fails you replace the hole valve assembly. These are inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a video at that will walk you thru the testing a water inlet valve. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same. If you need help disassembling there are also videos of disassembling most styles. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models will be available. All parts come with installation instructions.

The cold water trickles. There is a "good" flow of water (hot&cold) to the machine yet, the cold water trickles out on any cold setting. The hot water has great flow. What could be the answer?


Sounds to me like your inlet valve is gunked up. You will need to replace your inlet valve. I would also check your hoses first to make sure the cold water hose does not have a screen on it that is full of calcium deposits. Hope this helps _MJ_

The flow of the cold water seems to be restricted. The hot water pores into the tub. The cold trickles in. After disconnecting the cold hose, hot water back feeds out of the cold input side of the machine....

Hot water entering machine is only a trickle. It


Check the filter trap on the back of the washer where the hot water fill hose connects to the inlet valve, you wil have to shut the hot water valve off first, then remove the hose at the washer and inspect the little filter screen thats in the valve where the hose screws onto the washer, it probably has trapped enough sediment to restrict the flow of hot water into the washer.
Good Luck !

Cold water pressure is very low. Checked water line and screen. Hot water flows without a problem. Cold water sometimes starts fast and then reduces to a trickle.


Do you have a regular "boiler drain" type valve for your cold water supply? Is it possible your washer came loose inside the valve like mine did?

You will of course have to turn off the water mail to check this.

Slow cold water flow won't go back to full flow


I think the water inlet valve is nearly stopped up with sediment in the screen filter where the supply hose screws to the valve.Cut the water off at the hose and disconnect and look for the screen. The hot water usually doensn't do this because the water has time to settle everything out while it's in the hot water heater.

Kenmore 90 Series Washer : cold water fills at just a trickle:


your hot water goes through the water heater so contaminates settle in the heater. the cold does not, there is a screen inside the fill valve where the hose hooks to the valve on the machine. if this in not plugged then the fill valve will have to be replaced. because of the build up of contaminates..

Rinse cycle water flows out to a trickle- regular wash cycle flows normal- water valve?


Flows out where , drain or into machine ? If into machine , Most washers have a cold rinse into machine . If your using hot fill and you get a trickle , then problem is a clogged screen at the valve or a bad water valve .

Hot water just trickles in both of my Kenmore top loader washers


Try reversing hot for cold hoses and see what happens. That will test your valves, hot water pressure, etc. As far as I know, the valve screens are right where the hoses hook up.

Cold water flow is sporatic.


For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside where you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.
